Average, there are nicer places

Sure, the view is ok, the park is fine and must be a plus for the families with children, but the cafe itself does not have anything special. No juices, standard choices of coffee (meaning difficult to find something if you are not an espresso lover), croissants insipid... In addition to this... read more

It has a fantastic view for Maputo bay, but unfortunately the service doesn´t match the beauty of the view or even the price that they charge for light meals. It took me 15 minutes for the waiter to come and collect my order and another 45 min to have a basic cup of tea and a cheese and tomato toast.

Food was delicious and excellent value for money. Waiter occasionally needed reminding of drink order - should use a note pad more!

Went to the cafe for brunch on lazy Saturday afternoon. The food was very good and you also have a very nice view.

This is the slowest most dysfunctional restaurant I have been to in Maputo. The food is tasty, but not worth the 45 minute wait, unless you have time to waste. Acacia is a pretty view and nothing more.

Lovely service, very nice view ... an oasis in the middle of town. As everywhere else in Maputo, it is overpriced.

This place it's located on a very beautiful spot. It's managed by one of the finest hotels in town but the service it's not so good. Some times you wait a lot to be served and it's very frustrating the fact they don't serve natural juices on a place like that... Could be a much better place!

With a terrific view and a garden for the kids, this could be an iconic place in Maputo. The service is terrible (you have to wait ages sometimes). I complained once, and I saw others do the same. The food is average and most of the time the ice creams that they have are always the same boring, chocolate, strawberry... More

great place for snacks and breakfast. Evenings or mornings has always beautiful view. It's a clean place and has a big garden and playing stuff for children. Prices are reasonable. Good place to visit.
